Windows DNS: Proper TCP/IP preferred/alternate settings for redundancy/speed on multiple DCS?
Posted on 2008-06-18
I'm using Windows 2003 Server EE and configuring DNS. I have configured three domain controllers that appear to be replicating properly. I intend to use these to facilitate DFS, load balanced IIS, and other services. I want to know the right way to configure TCP/IP settings on these and future servers that I add to the domain.
Let's suppose the following:
The first server I set up as a DC was 18.104.22.168
The second server I set up as a DC was 22.214.171.124
The third server I set as a DC was 126.96.36.199
What is the correct preferred and alternate DNS to specify in TCP/IP?
Now let's suppose I put these DCs behind a firewall and buy three more IIS boxes to provide load-balanced web services. What are the correct preferred and alternate DNS settings to specify in TCP/IP?
